"Receiving the award also highlights the excellent career opportunities that agriculture can offer Manitobans.

To achieve recognition through Manitoba's Top Employer, CCGA was assessed on eight criteria including 1) workplace, 2) work atmosphere, 3) benefits, 4) vacation and time off, 5) employee communications, 6) performance management, 7) training and development, and 8) community involvement.

"We're continually adapting our work environment so staff can remain agile and engaged," says Larysa Motruk, Director of Human Resources at CCGA.

We believe in creating a workplace that balances the needs of our people with the needs of the organization. It's rewarding to be honoured with this Manitoba employer award."
